Sanyo microwave model em-s5002w won't heat...sounds louder

Hi,

My 4 yr old Sonyo microwave model #em-s5002w, suddenly sounds louder and won't heat anything. Turn table and inside light still work as does the outside control pad.

Too new to go bad. I unplugged it and plugged it back in again and nothing changed.

Sounds like a component failure in the microwave circuit.

It will be one or more of the following -

Fuse
Diode
Capacitor
Transformer
Magnetron

Reply back and I can help you more. These failures happens to new or old microwaves.

I have an old Sanyo Microwave Model EM-FL90N which has worked great, everything works but it seems not to be heating stuff up. The manual is not of much help either. Any suggestions? Help?


Javaid,
You might want to consider replacing the microwave if it is more than 8-10 years old. Sounds like you have a magnatron that is going bad and that is what does the cooking, and to replace it could cost you almost as much as a newer microwave. Hope this helps!

The cardboard cover inside the microwave broke, how do I get a replacement. Is it safe to run it without it ?


NO, it's NOT safe to run the microwave without it.
It's not that it's harmful to you--because it's not--but it IS harmful to your microwave. That cardboard cover that you're talking about is called a "mica shield," which, in short, protects your microwave from frying itself.


I'd say talk to Sanyo to see if they can get a replacement for you (which they usually can, or they can at least tell you where to get one). According to their website, www.us.sanyo.com , it doesn't look like they have a support phone number, but they have service locators--I'd say if you can give one of the centers a call, and give them you model, they might be able to help you out with getting the mica shield ;)


Good luck! :)

Sanyo microwave EM-X515G


I'm thinking that the circuit board has a problem. I doubt it will work but disconnect all the connectors on the board...with the power off and reconnect. It may clean off some goo. If not, use your method as long as it will work and then consider a new board.
